Key decision-makers from the Birmingham BSF procurement team, including Bovis, Catalyst Lend Lease and Birmingham City Council will be at Interbuild BSF to see exhibitors' innovations on show.
With the procurement process beginning in the autumn, it is an unmissable opportunity for exhibitors to gain a guaranteed meeting with the Birmingham BSF project team.
Andrew King, New Projects Director at Bovis Lend Lease commented: "It's important that the supply chain knows that we want to engage with them. We have 11 schools onsite from August 2010, so Interbuild BSF is perfect timing if you have an innovation to profile to our procurement teams."
Roger Thompson, Education Sector Director at Catalyst Lend Lease, added that there is a need to "identify the innovations we don't know, not just those we do."
Interbuild BSF has also teamed up with Lend Lease to host and judge the first ever Interbuild BSF Awards. Bringing together and rewarding the most innovative providers of school building services, the Interbuild BSF Awards are free to enter for all exhibitors.
The judging panel, comprising Birmingham City Council, Bovis, Catalyst, Vita and Redstone, will examine the submissions during a full day tour of the show on Monday 19th October. Category winners will be presented with their awards during an official ceremony in the show's Construction Forum Theatre at 1.30pm on Tuesday 20th October.
The categories for the Interbuild BSF Awards are:
- Innovation Enhancing Learning
- Innovation in Sustainability
- Innovation in ICT
- Innovation in Building Fabric
- Innovation in M&E
